Merry Christmas to all of our collectors........



We are hanging up our christmas stockings and about to spend time with friends & family.
Just a little message to say a huge Big Thank You to all our collectors who have supported us this year.

We truly appreciate every single one of you that has visited us at the shows we attend and taken home one of our designs.

Some of you have never met us in person but have adopted a new teddy bear or character from our blog shows and have then sent us return messages of pleasure and delight.
Thank you for those messages they keep us going when we really need it.
                                                                                

We know that some of you have followed our progress for many years and your collections are very precious to you.
Thank you so much for your continued patronage it is nice to know that our designs bring you so much joy.

Thank you also to those of you who share our work with other collectors on social media
for the facebook likes and sweet comments,follows on pinterest and now instagram too.
We pop in and react when we can and its always so nice to hear from you too.

We will be back in 2017 with another blog show in January.(date yet to be announced)

We will be planning new designs for the Hugglets Winter Bear Fest at Kensington on 26th February.
Also we are looking forward to the summer and celebrating 115years of Teddy Bears at Woburn Teddy Bear Festival on 11th June.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!
